|05:58 pm - Fun days before school-work hits~|
Hmm, just realized I need to do a massive picture post sometime soon...maybe...lol, procrastination setting in already and we've barely started the new year/semester. I took a ton of photos of my room back home (aka my mom's place) and I totally forgot to post them until I got my camera out today and looked through the photos in the memory card, I think if I sold even half of the stuff in my room I can get enough money to buy a ticket to Japan no problem XD Yeah there's THAT much stuff ^^;;
Well anyway, today I went to a local Korean restaurant with some friends, both to celebrate my b-day (which was technically on the 7th) and to celebrate the b-day of one of my other friends. There seems to be a LOT of birthdays around this time of year, out of the people I know (in person) there's 4 birthdays including mine all within a week of each other O___o My Japanese friend that I mentioned in the last post brought the 'Zuka books, omg I was squee'ing in the middle of the restaurant XDD The waiters/waitresses were looking at me funny. There's a photobook of the 1996 production of Elisabeth with Maki Ichiro, an autobiography of Maya Miki and 3 other books all with gorgeous photos *O* Although the books were mostly on OG's (what does that stand for anyway?), mostly around the top stars of the 90's but there's photos of tops today as baby siennes <3~. I wanted to post some photos but the flash kept reflecting on the cover of the books making it hard to see anything clearly except this giant bulb of light x__X I'll take some photos tomorrow during the day when I don't need to use the flash. I can't believe I own 'Zuka books :D~~!!!!! I'm sooooooooo~ excited, holy crap, 'Zuka books! Shinies!! Oh, here's a photo of everyone in the restaurant (click to enlarge):
From left to right it's Cynthia (the other bday girl), me (those aren't antennas coming out of my head, it's the handle of a bag we set on the window sill <___<), prettyxkaykay and fukurou_takumi.
Ah good times, good times. Oh for anyone wondering, we had Korean BBQ, the grill's in the middle of the table.
Current Mood: full
Ahh cool, that's a good pic!!! Happy belated birthday to you I didn't say it yet.

hahaha coool!! congrats for Zuka books shinies <3
OG = Old Girls (like in schools)
so any sienne who has retired is an OG :D
you got a Miki autobiography? which one? :)
muahahahaha :D that book is so cute! with the pictures inside :)
thanks for your sweet offer but I already own the book ;p
just checking to see what other people are getting ~ heee ;D
ooh yes I LOVE Miki <3
my aim is to get my Japanese good enough to read and understand what she's saying in that book. I actually haven't tried to read it again after I passed Japanese2 in my school.
maybe I'll try again when I buy myself a Japanese dictionary (hopefully soon!!)

Egads! Happy belated b-day! x_X I hope you had lots of fun!
Hello dear ^^
It's cute how much you love Zuka, and it's so nice of your friend to get those things for you.
Did you guys go to Korea Garden? Also, have you been to the new Korean BBQ place in chinatown? The food is not that great there which is a pity because their servers are such sweethearts.
Yep, Korean Garden was where we went. I went to the new Korean BBQ in chinatown last weekend with a friend and I agree, it's not that great, and the stuff was pretty expensive. Our buffet at KG was only 18 bucks tax included, we took a look at their BBQ menu at the restaurant in chinatown and for just one type of meat it was like...33 dollars x___X They also didn't have a lot of things on their menu...although I'm wondering if that's because they just opened recently. Anyway, I really like Korean Garden, we used to live right across the street from there and now I wish we had gone more often, lol.
PS. Aw~ Thanks for saying it's cute, I've only gotten obsessed and insane so far XD
